Thanks Ken - agreed.  We both got a little off topic - but I do think sources
for reliable hardware ultimately help anyone working with FreeBSD - especially
when dealing with many machines in a cluster.  I'm sure we all have stories
about lots of wasted hours only to find out it was due to some cheap no-name
card or something



| Ray/List, et. al.--
| I'd meant to send my last reply to Ray and not the list.  That's what I
| get for doing email that late when I'm tired...
| I think Ray's reply to OP was an honest effort to be helpful based on
| his personal experiences with oss.  Similarly with me.  I wouldn't have
| followed up to the extent that I did had not the company I was
| referencing been so rude and arrogant.
| Sorry that I cannot recall specifics as they were one of many
| I spoke with and it's been a few weeks but I was pretty sure we
| were talking about the same outfit.  However, I now concede that we may
| not have been referencing the same company.  Doing some research this
| morninig, I am inclined to think I was the one in error.  The
| company I referenced was very close in name (again sorry that I cannot
| recall precisely), linked to from Tyan's website (perhaps at the time,
| but I cannot seem to find them there anymore), was a flash heavy site,
| and somehow affiliated with Colfax (at least that's who I got
| transferred to and the website I was directed to to check pricing).  Of
| this latter part I am sure because I revisited and immediately
| recognize the site.
| Anyhow, I don't want to spam the list anymore with this.  But in
| fairness to Open Source Storage I feel I should post this follow up
| saying that I _may_ have been confusing them with someone else.  My
| apologies if I've offended anyone in so doing.
| Thanks for your indulgence and have a good day;-)
| Ciao-- kvg
